GROW YOUR OWN MICROGREENS!
IT HAS BECOME MY PERSONAL MISSION TO TEACH MANY PEOPLE, HOW TO GROW THEIR OWN SPROUTS, MICROGREENS, BABY GREENS AND HERBS. READ BELOW TO SEE ALL OF THE SERVICES AND PROUDUCTS I PROVIDE ; WORKSHOPS, SEEDS, SOILS, GROWING TRAYS, KITS AND MY NEW E-BOOK.
Microgreens and sprouts are diverse in nutrient density, containing multiple vitamins, proteins, amino acids, and trace elements. Growing healthy food is our primary focus. The ingredients used to grow your food, are your food.
The seeds we use are all untreated. Most are organically grown and non GMO (lettuce varieties are the only seeds not from organic stock). No pesticides or sprays are required. Use organic soils for best results.
Freshness is also very important. Most harvested Sprouts, Baby and Microgreens will last two weeks in your fridge!
Sprouts are the first stage of plant growth, where the young plant emerges from the seed. We call this the sprout. Sprouts have two parts, Roots and Shoots (Roots grow down into soil, Shoots grow above soil). When we grow sprouts for food, it is done hydroponically. This is most commonly done in a glass jar with a sprouting lid. Many seeds are soaked and drained twice daily and kept in a dark cupboard for the duration of the growing process. Common varieties sprouted include; alfalfa, broccoli, mung, and garlic chive to name a few. Most types are ready for harvest in 3 to 5 days
Microgreens are considered the second stage of growth. As a Microgreen, vegetables, herbs, edible flowers, and leafy greens, are usually harvested after one to three weeks from planting. Typically after the first set of true leaves appear. They are sometimes referred to as ''Shoots''. Microgreens seeds are planted in mass, grown in trays using grow mediums like; Peat moss, Coco coir, Hydroponics or Grow mats. Some form of light is required for this process (natural, or artificial).
Baby greens and herbs are grown slightly longer, usually 21 days or more (not to maturity). Crops grown this way will have larger leaves and yields compared to Micro's. Seeds will be planted with less density as well. This style of growing is best suited for Herbs and Lettuce.
This work shop will provide you with the detailed information you will need to grow over 30 varieties of Microgreens, Baby Greens, Herbs and mixes. Plus sprouting! It is my goal to have you leave with the ability and confidence to grow beginner level baby and microgreens. With time and experience you will master even the more challenging varieties.
Save money and learn a set of self sustaining skills in a group or private setting. The start up costs associated with these styles of growing can be inexpensive. Florescent or LED shop lights will work fine. Even a sunny window can grow micro or baby greens. Save 300 to 500% by not buying your greens at the grocery store. Enjoy piece of mind knowing, the food you have grown, is of your highest standards (eat organic and non GMO)!
The workshop incudes my 44 page (and growing) E-book. I will send it via email, upon registration, to give participants time to absorb the material before class. The E-book is also available for sale on its own. The E- book covers:
Why grow your own greens?
There will be many demonstrations. They include:
The cost of the workshop, including E-book and grow kit is 50$ plus HST. If you are looking to purchase only the E-book, the cost is 20$ plus HST. For those who purchase the E-book alone, they will receive 20$ off of a future workshop. I am happy to support you after the workshop. Once you get growing, email me if you have questions. I want you to succeed.
